OK the person that helped me customize my ribbon panel no longer works here thus my problem. We upgraded to 2013 and since I'm use to my 2011 ribbon the way it is ... I'm trying to customize it. How do you move a panel from one tab to another? I'm trying to move the dimenions panel from annoate to the home tab.
Greatly appreciate any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
On the Manage Tab, click on CUI User Interface, or type CUI on the command line.
On the top/left click on your current workspace e.g.Architecture Default (current)
On the right you will see in the Workspace Contents all the ribbons and tabs you currently have.
Expand the Ribbons Tabs tree view (+)
Expand the Annotate ACA tree view
Here you will fins the Dimensions -ACA panel.
Just drag/drop this panel to the Home -ACA Ribbon
You can re-arrange the location of the dimensions panel within the Home tab by moving it up or down in the tree view.
Now you have moved the dimension panel.
Always create a backup copy of the CUI in case your cutomization goes awry and you have to do a restore
yeah, I tried that before I posted the question. Do you need admin rights? I made a workspace to customize and it lets me move the panel within the ribbon tab but not to another tab.
You shouldn't need admin rights.
Try drag and dropping the dimesnion panel from the left under Customization Files to your workspace.
p.s. Also best to create a new workspace, so you can restore the default ACA if needed.
Yeah, I was clicking on the customize button. Below are the steps that I'm doing. Maybe you'll find something I'm doing wrong.
I click on Customize under the workspace switching button (lower right hand corner)
Click on the workspace that I want to customize which is current (and a copy)
Click on customize work space on the right hand side of the CUI pop up window
Expand ribbon tab, expand home tab and annotate tab
Pick Dimensions panel and tried to drag and drop it to the Home tab
- but it won't let me. Looked like it would place it there but goes back to the annotate tab.
Very fustration ....
On the left side of the CUI drag the Dimension panel and drop onto the Home tab.
This will add to the home panel.
Once you exit the CUI you can right click on the panel and select which tabs and panels you want to show or not.
You already told me to try this solution ... didn't work. It will let me pick the panel but won't let me drop it on the home tab. I tried to pick the dimension tab but it wouldn't add it to the home tab, it would add a new tab called dimensions.
I'm assuming the ACA.cuix or acad.cuix and it's in the following folder. I'm in windows 7 ...
C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\ACA 2013\enu\Support
and I do have permission to the folder and the files and the cuix files are not read only
